I don’t like to shop. Every time I go to a store, I can’t get everything that I want. They don’t have it. The last time I went to Green Top, they had the plastic but not the strong slider hooks. So I didn’t buy anything.
Today I went with my wife to the grocery store because fishing was canceled. Did you know that toilet paper costs seven dollars? And that was the sale price. I couldn’t believe it. There is no way that a package of twelve rolls of toilet paper should cost seven dollars! I used to work for James River Paper Company (one of their products was toilet paper). My wife says that she can’t send me to the store because I would come back with nothing.
Something is terribly wrong with our economy. I guess I have lived too long. That brings me to another subject: health insurance and hospital costs. At my age, it is cheaper to die than go into a hospital. I’m not afraid to die. It happens all the time. And to die in Christ, there is no better comfort. When Jesus returns, a better life is promised. Maybe we won’t need any toilet paper!
